With 14 saves, a few of them genuinely excellent, it is unlikely that there are many other keepers in the world who could have done the same for Newcastle on Sunday as they defeated Tottenham 1-0 at White Hart Lane.
Key moment (50’): Chance! Soldado squares the ball to the oncoming Eriksen, and with his second touch he shoots for Krul to turn away with his trailing leg. A corner is then wasted, and Sandro blasts a shot just wide from 25 yards.

RB: Leandro Bacuna, for Aston Villa v Cardiff City (8/10)
In a game which didn't look like going anywhere much, Bacuna came up with the moment which changed it definitively in Villa's favour when firing home a free-kick. The Dutchman has been a fine addition to the Villa side.
Key moment (76’): Goal! Bacuna with a great free-kick! The keeper didn't move. From 25 yards out, slightly to the right, he bent the ball into - somewhere near - the top corner.

Set up the only goal of the game with a raking long ball down the line to Phil Bardsley and, considering he hasn’t played Premier League football in 22 months, he defended like he had never been away. An exceptional performance.
Key moment (79’): So much pressure. City with another corner which they play short to Aguero. Nasri plays it wide to Navas who gives it to Zabaleta but Brown blocks twice.
Wes Brown has been excellent today. Worth remembering that Di Canio offered to terminate his contract in the summer

Typically poor going forward from right-back, he nevertheless was defensively excellent in the first half and made a number of key challenges in the second half at centre-back when moved there following Nemanja Vidic’s injury.
Key moment (82’): Giroud dummies brilliantly to buy space, and Smalling is across perfectly to take the ball away from him.
Smalling excellent defensively. Attacking will never be his forte but he's an excellent defender. — Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) November 10, 2013

The France international stepped up following Vidic’s departure due to injury and helped keep a limp Arsenal side out at Old Trafford. He combined well with Shinji Kagawa and never looked anything other than composed during his 250th Premier League appearance.
Key moment (72’): Evra, Van Persie and Rooney do well to bring Valencia into play on the right. He gets two crosses but both are cleared and Jones mops up an Arsenal break.

The French midfielder scored a rare goal but continued to impress with his application and energy in midfield. His success in intercepting play and breaking up opposition attacks allows his more flamboyant team-mates to flourish ahead of him.
Key moment (16’): GOAL! Schneiderlin nods in to the top corner to put Saints ahead. Clyne stands up the ball to the far post where Lambert somehow squeezes a header back to Schneiderlin who nods in to the top corner.

Sat alongside Sebastian Larsson in midfield, the South Korean was in superb form, recycling possession proficiently and keeping the ball ticking over in the middle of the park. Starred in a quite brilliant 1-0 win over City.
Key moment (58’): Fantastic from Ki as he dances through the midfield and smashes a shot but it just swerves wide.
Ki Sung-yeung was excellent for Sunderland vs Man City. Always wants ball, so comfortable in possession. Made the difference

Okay, so putting him on the right is a bit of creative accounting on our part as he scored twice from a central role against Fulham, but as a forward, the man is different class. He could have had more on the day and Liverpool's unlikely push for the Premier League title could depend upon keeping the Uruguayan forward fit.
Key moment (36’): GOAL! Suarez slides the ball into the net. Liverpool lead 3-0. And this match is surely all over. Henderson with the pass. Fine finish.

AMC: Adam Lallana, for Southampton v Hull City (9/10)
Absolutely unplayable. His dribbling, passing and work rate were exemplary and topped off by a goal which was simply sublime. Substituted to a standing ovation and more than justified his inclusion in the England squad to face Chile and Germany.
Key moment (37’): WHAT A GOAL Lallana! Turns away from Huddlestone and rolls past Davies into the penalty area with some glorious footwork, Elmohamady can't tackle as he bears down on goal and Lallana finishes coolly into the bottom right. What a way to celebrate his England call-up with Roy Hodgson watching.
Just seen Adam Lallana's goal. Not seen a better one all season...

AML: Jay Rodriguez, for Southampton v Hull City (8/10)
Another Saint to make the England selection, Rodriguez also relished the chance to demonstrate his credentials with a typically dangerous performance in a 4-1 win over Hull, even if he didn’t get on the scoresheet himself.
Key moment (7’): Lallana and Rodriguez combine beautifully down the right but the cut back to Ward-Prowse is cut out by Huddlestone from a corner. Hull allow the ball to bounce but clear their lines eventually.
Adam lallana and jay Rodriguez will bring soooo much flare to England. Very much needed — SuccessLanre (@Successlanre) November 9, 2013

ST: Wilfried Bony, for Swansea City v Stoke City (9/10)
Scored a brace to drag his side back in to the game and then to take the lead in the dramatic 3-3 draw with Stoke. Took his goals well and grew in confidence and stature as the game went on. Bony was unlucky not to have won the game for Swansea in the absence of Michu.
Key moment (87’): GOAL BONY! Fantastic goal from Swansea. Shelvey turns Shawcross inside out three times on the left before pulling the ball back to Bony who sweeps the ball with his left foot past Begovic into the bottom corner.
3 - All three of Wilfried Bony's Premier League goals for Swansea City have been scored at the Liberty Stadium. Comforts.
